ABINGDON
THE SHOP - Anthony's Desserts. An almost

mandatory fixture of Virginia Living Magazine's
"Best of Southwest Virginia" list, a trip to Anthony's
is like visiting a comestible treasure trove. Trained at
the International Culinary Academy Le Cordon Bleu,
owner and pastry chef Anthony Perkins cut his chops
in the much-lauded Martha Washington Inn and Spa.
In 2010, he went into business for himself to focus on
creative desserts. anthonysdesserts.com
THE PRODUCT - Hand-roasted coffee and an array
of dessert selections made from seasonal ingredients.
The menu changes daily and features a combination of
small batch handmade gourmet ice cream, single-serving pies, cheesecakes, brownies, cookies and tarts.
KILLER FLAVORS - Traditional frozen tastes like
chocolate are done upscale. Additionally, look for bitesize key lime and coconut pies, chocolate peanut butter
tarts, black forest cakes, crème brulée and much more.
HOW TO EARN IT - Bike or hike the Virginia Creeper
Trail from Abingdon to downtown Damascus. Start
at the trail's welcome center a few blocks from Main
Street Abingdon. From there, the route is mostly
downhill and will carry you along 16 miles of exquisite rail-to-trail into the heart of one of the sweetest
'Trail Towns' on the East Coast. You'll breeze through
rhododendron forests and meadows while passing

South Holston Lake.

rentals, or more info about the trail, contact

VA CREEPER TRAIL
One of the magic things about
rail-trails is that they're pretty
flat, making the ice-cream
earning fairly easy.
